During this time, engineers will be installing new Cisco best of breed 7606-S chassis with RSP720-3CXL-GE supervisor engines as Customer Edge Routers (CER), integrating a fully meshed multi-10Gbps distribution core utilizing existing Cisco 6509 chassis with new VS-S720-10G-3CXL supervisor engines (DAR), and upgrading our current infrastructure to our Frontend Customer Routers (FCR).
